I am staring at this Craigslist link very hard, thinking about driving it across the country, getting a new set of baja fenders painted to match, and begin a new Baja life.
I am having horrible dreams of buying some rust-free California VW and building up a new Baja Bug of my own. Do it right. Buy the nicest car I can afford, work from there. Maybe start with something unrestored like this, or something pretty like this. Those cars almost look too nice, but it would be fun to buy a car…
man that baja looks great oh wait I own it remind me to make it slightly less busted
This thing is itching for more dirt. Now I just have to figure out how to replace a pushrod tube and get this thing a skidplate. And maybe change the suspension bushings and rebuild the shift linkage. Nothing serious.
You can tell it's going to be a cold winter here in Nebraska. The wind is thick with it, sweeping across the cornfields. It all matches pace with the dotted white clouds, running way out to the horizon line. And I'm sitting in a stripped and caged Super Beetle, two carburetors about to roar away behind me.
The good and bad of warmth's departure.
so, tried to get the alternator out for replacement and, uh, hit a few snags.
Very packed near-week up at the Mt. Washington hillclimb. Many stories to be told. Somewhere in the middle of everything was getting buzzed by a helicopter at speed at 5,000 feet at eye level.
I need to replace a wheel. specifically the front passenger side one, pictured. Problem is, I don't know what size wheel I need.
